The Waypoints and Coordinates

The table below provides the pilot with the GPS coordinates of the campsites and other waypoints along the DTC Sky Trail.  The Magnetic Course and Distance to the next waypoint are shown, as well as the approximate MSL elevation at the waypoint location.  Use these coordinates in conjunction with the course-chart to plot your course on the Los Angeles VFR Sectional Chart

GPS waypoints make your navigation a lot easier.  You can upload the waypoints as a tab-delimited text file, or enter them manually from the tables below.
